called Edmund Jenings (1659-1727)

Artist: Unknown
Date: ?

This portrait is identified as Edmund Jenings, however, its style is close to John Wollaston’s style of the 1750s and the costume dates too late to be a life portrait. It may be another Jenings family member or a 19th-century copy of an original portrait.

Dimensions: 24 x 20 in. (60.96 x 50.8 cm.)

The subject wears a dark jacket and waistcoat and a long wig.
